WatchKit app has much higher success rate in Xcode 6.3.1 (simulator)

I upgraded my Xcode from 6.3 to 6.3.1, tried the same Hello World app as mentioned in previous post (based on tutorial from Natasha's blog). Still running in iPhone 6 simulator, it was much much quicker and it works all the time. That was definitely a huge improvement!

Then tried this "Maps on the Apple Watch" tutorial from Kristina Tsai's blog, and can see the 6 spinning white circles (for the map) in a few seconds time after clicked on run - makes me a bit excited for a few seconds...

But it just keep spinning and spinning until I get the same "Lost connection to iPhone 6" message again. Did a clean and tried 2nd time, still spins for a long time, got bored and stopped it after about 2-3 min wait.  Luckily at the 3rd attempt, it worked, hurray!
Don't know why, but after that it constantly works in all the following attempts, must be magic!

Also run the "Apple Watch" app in the simulator again, as below, it now shows both WatchKit apps as expected.

Well, at least it's not as frustrated as previous Xcode 6.3. Have you played with WatchKit yet? Come and give it a go! Now, wonder which tutorial should I try next...
